The National Logistics Academy


The National Logistics Academy was launched in May 2015 as a UK wide network of long established logistics specialist training providers. We offer apprenticeships in operational roles such as LGV driving and warehousing as well as back office roles such as traffic office and customer service. We also deliver advanced apprenticeships in team leading and management.

The Academy was set up to support logistics employers that have a need to train apprentices at locations across the country but wish to contract with a single organisation that can manage the apprenticeship delivery to a common high standard.

Our parent company Mantra Learning has been successful in its application for acceptance onto the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers which means that from 1st May we can continue to deliver apprenticeships under the National Logistics Academy brand for levy paying employers.

All customer contact is through the central hub where we monitor and report on all apprentices’ progress utilising a sophisticated MI system.

New Trailblazer Apprenticeships

Apprenticeship frameworks are gradually being replaced by new Trailblazers based on standards written by groups of employers. The National Logistics Academy is currently developing programmes for the following standards:

  • Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) Driver - piloting
  • Operations/Departmental Manager
  • Team Leader / Supervisor
  • Supply Chain Operator - Traffic Office
  • Supply Chain Warehouse Operative
  • Express Delivery Operative
  • Customer Service Practitioner

We are currently piloting the LGV driver apprenticeship and plan to have the rest ready for delivery when Levy starts in May 2017. We have included information on the new standards as well as the existing frameworks for comparison.
